Step up and make intelligent decisions about what we REALLY want to spend money on.
In my opinion, there’s nothing more sexy than being smart about your daily choices. Especially when it comes to conscious consumerism, I believe that in this modern world of quick trends and the need to fulfill materialistic desires; we need to step up and make intelligent decisions about what we REALLY want to spend money on.
Our newest collection on Jetset Times SHOP is created by partners Danny and Kai, who founded Duffle & Co. in New Zealand to “focus on the environmental and social impacts of our products and operations, without compromising quality or style.” My team and I were thrilled to include Duffle & Co’s ultra cool travel bags on our SHOP, because similar to What Daisy Did, each product entails:
Leather that comes from goat hide derived from small scale community farming.
Tanning process using natural vegetable oils and sunlight.
Bag tailors – ex-shoe makers – lost their jobs in the trade shift to China.
Every tailor getting paid a fair wage.
End-of-roll fine quality lining used to minimize waste.
Best part: Duffle & Co. uses every dollar to conduct research regarding ethical production and consumption around the world!
As part of our #JetsetForGood campaign, for every purchase that you make on Jetset Times SHOP, we’ll donate part of the proceeds to fund Harmony Home in Taiwan, it’s an organization that I’ve been personally involved with for many years, helping and sponsoring HIV-positive/AIDS babies in China and Taiwan.

Her favorite countries so far from her travels have been: Bhutan, Iran, and Russia because they were all so different! St. Bart's was pretty amazing too (wink)!
